I was reading up on Chamomile when I came across a web page discussing the stomach flue and how the tea helps. I also stumbled apon this
Try Some Chia – Chia seeds are hydrophilic, which means they absorb water (up to 12 times their weight in water). You can use this property to your advantage by thoroughly hydrating the seeds before consuming them, using the seeds to carry water into you body. The gel-like coating that forms around the hydrated seeds soothes your digestive tract and slowly releases the water into your body as they pass through your system. In my case, I placed some yogurt and milk kefir into my Vitamix, poured in a tablespoon of chia, mixed slightly, and then let it sit and soak for 10 minutes before finishing the smoothie preparation. If you want something more basic, try chia fresca.
Chia Fresca recipe
1 tablespoon of dry chia seeds
10 ounces water.
2 teaspoons lime juice (or one tablespoon lemon juice)
Two teaspoons sugar or 1 tsp stevia powder
Mix chia seeds and water. Let stand ten minutes. Add juice and sweetener and mix well.
I wanted to share that and I’m reading up on it now but also wanted to know if any of you have experience with this seed. Outside of the chia pets:)March 18, 2012 at 11:04 pm #76286
